A full denture or a partial denture can be an effective replacement for teeth lost due to decay, gum disease or trauma. Dentures are designed to look like your natural teeth and can be made of light weight metal or specialist plastics called "acrylic" and "resin". Dentures are custom-made by your Dentist to ensure they do not cause irritation or complication. Dentures are most effective when they are regularly reviewed by a Dentist to ensure they are fitting you correctly and remain beneficial to your oral health.
